Kid Canon


My mother-in-law gave my daughter this sweet book last year and we are just now reading it. The book’s namesake, a 100 year-old doll named Hitty, tells her life story up to this point — and boy has she gotten around. First published in 1929, author Rachel Field was inspired by a carved wooden doll she found in a New York City antique shop, and it’s currently in the Stockbridge, Mass. library. We’ll definitely be making a pilgrimage there when we visit our cousins in the Berkshires this summer. Did I mention the book’s a Newbery Award winner?
